Zendaya is more than just your average 17-year-old.
The Disney star got her start in the business as a child model, appearing in advertisements for Macy’s, Old Navy, and Sears, among others. In November 2009, she auditioned for Disney Channel’s Shake It Up!, and landed a lead role, alongside Bella Thorne. Shake It Up! was on air from 2010-2013, and is one of the channel’s most successful shows. Zendaya became a household name after appearing and placing second on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Since then, she’s released a self-titled album, a book called Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence, and helped design a clothing line inspired by her character on Shake It Up! Up next for the teen starlet is a TV movie called Zapped and a new Disney Channel show called K.C. Undercover.
Zendaya is also obviously a style maven, having written a book about tween style and even designing a clothing line. In her personal life, the Disney star likes to sport a very casual urban style, but on the red carpet, she loves surprising everyone with her love for bright colors, cool patterns, and interesting silhouettes. However, no matter where she is, floral is a favorite pattern of Zendaya’s, as she’s often seen wearing it both on the red carpet and in her personal wardrobe. So, if you’re trying to dress like Zendaya, think floral, bright colors, and urban chic.
This first look is of Zendaya out at the beach in Summer 2013. For a cool casual outfit, select a black messenger tank top, brightly colored floral jeans or leggings, and black high top sneakers.
In this second look, Zendaya is at the 44th NAACP Image Award Nominations Ceremony back in 2012. Copy this cutesy look for a dinner outfit. Go with a plaid dress, with blue and red undertones, black kitten heels with a red bow, and accessorize with a simple silver bangle.
This third look is of Zendaya at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Use this daring and interesting outfit for inspiration for a night on the town. Choose a black mesh peplum top, a turquoise midi skirt, black heels, and a black clutch.
Zendaya has a great style that’s easily adaptable for teens or young adults. Bring her love of floral prints, bright colors, and interesting silhouettes into your wardrobe for an urban chic and fun loving style!
